Thanks, but did you see the rest of my message?
"On NetBSD however, the disc spins and it appears to be working, but it
takes forever (about 33 minutes with a 48X drive); and when it finally
stops, it gives me the following error:
md5: /dev/cd0a: Invalid argument
I have tried cd0a, cd0d, rcd0a, and rcd0c [sic]; the only difference is
that if I use the "raw" device, it returns the error almost immediately,
as opposed to first reading for a long while."
Sending the output to md5 doesn't work if there is no output....
